Goodbye, 2008

It was a rough year. The hardest of my life.

Even though technically Jerry Lee passed on December 27, 2007, we mourned him well into 2008.

The Final Call

Dad belonged to the UTU, United Transportation Union. In their monthly publication, they have a section called The Final Call where they list those members who recently passed. Dad had his final call this last year.

Dad, I miss you so much.

But there were a few good things, too:

(Who came to us November 2007 but we enjoyed his puppyhood in 2008)

He's grown to a handsome dog, and he is a love.

Who arrived early January 2008, and had to spend his first night with us in a motel in Rochester, Minnesota because I was sick.

And of course there's these three, who make my life worth living:

And I cannot forget the only other girl in the house, who keeps my feet warm every night:

A very sincere and heartfelt thank you to all my friends who read my blog, who have supported me through the good and bad times. May 2009 be wonderful for everyone!
